Wife wanted some meatloaf and my brother in law was coming up for a few days and meatloaf is one of his favorites so meatloaf it was.
Poked holes in the bottom of the pans for drainage and used 8 lbs total of 80/20 ground beef. Here it is going in

After about 1.5 hours cut the sides of the pans to expose more area to the smoke

Looks delicious Piney, I might have to grind up that chuck roast in the fridge and make a meatloaf.

I love smoked meatloaf! i did one last week...free form...no pan. Glazed it with a mix of ketchup, vinegar, coriander, brown sugar and hot sauce and threw it under the broiler for about 5 minutes.

That looks so good. Smoked meat loaf is a family favorite, it's time to do it again.

That Looks Great!!! Meatloaf is one of my favorite meals, I've tried 3 times to smoke but it comes out half raw. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Looks mighty good Jerry!
I like the idea of letting it set up, then cutting the edge of the pan, will definitely give that a try the next meatloaf I do.
Nicely done!
Al

I often use this http://columbiaspice.com/melose.html and it goes with 8 lbs of ground beef I use 80/20 I also dice a bell pepper and onion and add them add about 2 cups of water to get the spice pack to mix in better. Have 2 of the disposable aluminum loaf pans and poke holes in the bottom so it can drain. Once you've done that divide the meatloaf and add equal parts to the pans. Then into a 225 degree smoker after about an hour or hour and fifteen minutes cut the corners of the pan and fold the sides down so the meatloaf can get more smoke. The loaves need to reach 160 degrees in the center of the loaf usually around 2.5-3 hours give or take my pit boss ranges in temp from 215-260 when set at 225. Once done let it rest 15-20 minutes and slice
Good luck and be sure to post a thread when you do it
